No log is available for this period so no map can be displayed. (5)

21 Jun 1940
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) ended her 1st war patrol at Alexandria. (6)

29 Jun 1940

2 Aug 1940
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) departed Alexandria for her 3rd war patrol. She was ordered to patrol in the southern Adriatic.

No log is available for this period so no map can be displayed. (6)

15 Aug 1940
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) sank the Italian merchant Morea (1968 GRT, built 1918) about 50 nautical miles west of Durazzo, Albania. The Morea twice evaded torpedoes fired so she was sunk with gunfire. No further details regarding this attack are currently known to us as there is neither log nor patrol report available for this patrol.

According to Italian sources the auxiliary motor sailing vessel Caron and the sailing vessels Pagano and Azio were sailed from Durazzo to pick up the survivors. The Italian destroyer Carlo Mirabello was sailed from Brindisi to her assistance and picked up the 24 survivors, there were no casualties. Italian traffic to Albania was temporarily suspended. The torpedo boats Pallade, Polluce, Francesco Stocco and Cassiopea carried out an A/S sweep without result.

24 Aug 1940
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) ended her 3rd war patrol at Malta. At Malta she was docked for repairs but the exact dates are for the moment not known to us. (6)

9 Sep 1940
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) departed Malta for her 4th war patrol. Again she was ordered to patrol in the southern Adriatic.

No log, nor full patrol report is available for this period so no map can be displayed. (6)

13 Sep 1940 (position 0.00, 0.00)
At 0905 hours, having arrived in her patrol area only shortly before that time, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), fired four torpedoes at an Italian convoy of three ships escorted by a destroyer. No hits were obtained.

According to Italian data this was most likely the convoy made up of the merchant vessels Calitea (4013 GRT, built 1933) and Quirinale (3891 GRT, built 1907) escorted by the naval auxiliary Capitano A. Cecchi (2321 GRT, built 1934) and the torpedo boat Pallade. They had sailed from Bari at 0100/13 for Durazzo where they arrived at 1150/13. (7)

14 Sep 1940
At 0334 hours, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), fired one torpedo at an Italian convoy of four ships. The torpedo missed.

According to Italian data this convoy was most likely the convoy made up of the merchant vessels Calitea (4013 GRT, built 1933), Maria (6338 GRT, built 1926) and Leonardo Palomba (1110 GRT, 1899) escorted by the destroyer Carlo Mirabello. They had all sailed from Durazzo for Bari at 0030/14 except the slower Palomba which sailed at 2100/13 and was then overtaken.

Later the same day one transport and a destroyer were sighted but these passed well out of range.

According to the same Italian date these were probably the merchant vessel Quirinale and the torpedo boat Pallade (3891 GRT, built 1907) which were now on their way back to Italy. They had sailed from Durazzo at 0930/14 for Bari. Pallade reported sighting a submarine but only after she reached port. (7)

18 Sep 1940
At 0530 hours, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), sighted a large transport and an escorting destroyer. Due to the darkness no attack could be made.

According to Italian data these ships were possibly the merchant Alga (1851 GRT, built 1917) escorted by the torpedo-boat Monzambano. They had sailed from Valona at 2100/17 and arrived at Bari at 1730/18.

Later the same day, at 0930 hours, a convoy of four ships escorted by a destroyer was seen but they passed out of torpedo range.

These were probably the merchant vessels Catalani (2429 GRT, built 1928), Viminale (8657 GRT, built 1925) and Assiria (2705 GRT, built 1928) escorted by the auxiliary Capitano A. Cecchi (2321 GRT, built 1934) and the torpedo-boat Pallade which had sailed at 0530/18 from Bari for Durazzo.

The Italians reported two submarine sightings, on 18 September 1940, because of the time factor one of them was certainly bogus. The other may have been HMS Osiris:

Sighting no.1 - 1130 hours/18: a CANT Z.501 of 141^ Squadriglia (Flying Captain Germano Miani) sighted bubbles of air which could have been a submerging submarine and attacked it with two 160-kg A/S bombs from a height of 500 metres and reported an oil patch 15-metre wide. Position was approximately 260° - Durazzo - 18 miles. The torpedo boat Pallade sailed from Durazzo at 0140/19 to locate the submarine but returned at 0608/19 without sighting anything. Another CANT Z.501 (T.V. Silvestri) of the same squadron took off at 0845/19 to search the area and reported a large oil patch but carried no attack.

Sighting no.2 – 1138 hours/18: the destroyer Antonio Pigafetta on A/S sweep with her sister ships Giovanni da Verazzano, Alvise da Mosto and Nicolò Zeno sighted a submarine in position 40°50'N, 18°25'E. There is no information if the submarine was attacked. They had sailed from Brindisi at 0950/18 and returned at 1830-1905/18. (7)

19 Sep 1940
At 1050 hours, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), sighted a transport and an escorting destroyer. They were however not within torpedo range.

These were possibly the despatch vessel Piero Foscari (3423 GRT, built 1928) escorted by the torpedo boat Angelo Bassini which sailed at 0215/19 from Brindisi for Durazzo.

Then at 1132 hours, two transports and an escorting destroyer were sighted. An attack was commenced but had to be broken off when the destroyer was seen to alter course and close Osiris at high speed. Osiris went deep but no depth charges were dropped.

These were most probably the transports Viminale (8657 GRT, built 1925) and Catalani (2429 GRT, built 1928) escorted by the torpedo boat Pallade on passage from Durazzo to Bari. Pallade reported sighting a submarine at 1115-1145 hours in position 41°15'N, 18°38'E and there is little doubt this was HMS Osiris. The destroyers Carlo Mirabello and Augusto Riboty, the torpedo boats Castelfidardo and Polluce were sent to hunt the submarine but sighted nothing. (7)

20 Sep 1940 (position 0.00, 0.00)
At 0530 hours, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), sighted what was thought to be a cruiser at high speed. No attack was possible.

Possibly this was the auxiliary Barletta (1975 GRT, built 1931) escorting a convoy made up of the transports Calitea (4013 GRT, built 1933) and Quirinale (3891 GRT, built 1907) together with the torpedo-boats Partenope and Monzambano which sailed from Bari at 0050/20 for Durazzo where they arrived at 1900/20. An Italian fishing vessel also reported sighting a submarine at 0820 hours between Mola Di Bari and S. Spirito.

Then at 1105 hours a transport vessel was sighted but again no attack was possible.

Possibly this was the transport Delfino (???? GRT, built ????) escorted by the auxiliary Brindisi (1977 GRT, built 1931), they arrived at Bari at 1230/20.

At 1430 hours a dispatch vessel was sighted. No attack was started.

This was possibly Filippo Grimani (3431 GRT, built 1928) returning from Durazzo to Brindisi escorted by the torpedo-boat Angelo Bassini. Ten minutes before (at 1420 hours) the San Gerolamo battery (Bari) reported sighting a submarine.

Then at 1745 hours a ship was sighted that was thought to be the aircraft tender Giuseppe Miraglia. Again no attack was possible.

This vessel is so far unidentified, the ship it was thought to be was docked at Taranto at that time accoring to Italian data.

Also on this day, at 0820 hours a CANT Z.501 of 141 ^Squadriglia (observer T.V. Roberto Consiglio) attacked a submarine with a single 160-kg bomb in position 41°08'N, 19°00'E (near Durazzo). The bomb exploded about 50 metres ahead of the submarine. The aircraft circled the area until 1325 hours without further observation. The torpedo boat Partenope which was escorting the transport Casaregis (6485 GRT, built 1924) observed the aircraft and closed to investigate the oil patch near position 41°18'N, 18°18'E but estimated it was not from a submarine. Seems likely this attack was bogus (?).

(7)

22 Sep 1940 (position 41.19, 18.34)
At 1830 hours, HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN), torpedoed and sank the Italian torpedo boat Palestro (889 tons, built 1921) about 40 nautical miles west of Durazzo, Albania in position 41°19'N, 18°34'E.

Palestro was escorting three empty freighters; Oreste (2679 GRT, built 1896), Premuda (4427 GRT, built 1907) and Carlotta (750 GRT, built 1914) on passage from Durazzo to Bari. One torpedo hit the torpedo-boat, breaking her in two, she sank in four minutes. Three officers, including her Commanding Officer, and 69 ratings were lost, 43 survivors were picked up by the freighter Carlotta. The torpedo-boat Giacomo Medici was sent to escort the convoy while the torpedo-boats Solferino and Angelo Bassini and the MAS-boats MAS 535 and MAS 539 sailed from Brindisi to hunt the submarine as well as four CANT Z.501 of 141^ Squadriglia. Premuda and Oreste reported an underwater shock and their hulls were later examined by divers but nothing unusual was found.

[No further details regarding this attack are currently known to us as there is neither log nor full patrol report of HMS Orisis available for this patrol.]

23 Sep 1940 (position 0.00, 0.00)
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) passed through the Staits of Otranto and then patrolled in the entrance of the Straits during 23 and 24 September 1940.

During 23/24 September 1940 one attack on a submarine was recorded by the Italians;
At 1800/23: the 13^ Squadriglia MAS boats [MAS 534, MAS 535 and MAS 539] attacked a submarine with nine depth charges 19 miles from Pedagne (Brindisi).

This attacks / contact appears to be non-sub. (7)

25 Sep 1940 (position 0.00, 0.00)
HMS Osiris (Lt.Cdr.(Retd.) J.R.G. Harvey, RN) departed her patrol area for Alexandria.

Italian records give one A/S attack on this day;
At 1745 hours: a CANT Z.501 of 141^ Squadriglia (observer T.V. Toller) dropped a single 160-kg A/S bomb on a submarine. It missed by 60-70 metres ahead of the submarine. This was 6 miles east of Trani or ca. 41°17'N, 16°32'E.

This attack / contact must be non-sub. (7)
